In this time in which we are not able to gather for the Mass and Sacraments, the Church is still here for you.
The coronavirus outbreak has had a profound impact on our Cathedral Parish and indeed our country and countries around the world. In light of all of the precautions to contain the outbreak and avoid further illness, many of us may be hesitant to leave our homes. It is precisely at this time that we need our faith more than ever. Please know that you can still call our priests to set up Confessions or Anointing of the Sick.
We invite you to watch and participate in our Daily Mass online via Facebook. Monday through Saturday, join us live at 8:00am. On Sunday , join us live at 9:00am. All Masses are recorded for you to view at your convenience at a later time (see below). A priest’s primary role is to preach the Word and offer sacrifice for and on behalf of his people, which we will do, mindful of our parishioners and your intentions.

During these difficult times we must remember that “Social distance” does not mean “spiritual distance.” When we cannot physically attend Mass, we still keep holy the Day of the Lord as individuals and families, by keeping a holy hour of genuine prayer. While viewing Mass on live or recorded media, or at any time, we may make a ‘spiritual communion’. We are still obligated to the Lord’s Day holy, which requires that we seek to refrain from work, increase our love of the Lord and extend charity to others through prayer and service. We can certainly encourage one another to maintain Lent as a Holy Season with the prayer, fasting and almsgiving with which we began it… and now more fervently than ever.
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
